Never seen anything like that for hire, think you might be better with a backpack carrier

I'd also be interested in an answer to this if someone knows somewhere that rents/sells?

Last Xmas we were in Chamonix with our 4 month old and even with snow tyres on the pram (specific big wheels front and back on a Bugaboo) it was pretty hard going in some places. There was just that much snow.

I was not convinced of the backpack carriers as any fall for you is a fall for the baby - the pram or a sled seemed safer.

Hence, if there is lots of snow this year, we would love to have a sled/sledge to get around in as well as have some fun.

Cheers

The only thing I can suggest is stop at a supermarket and buy a sledge.

If you cannot take it home just leave it.

Most of the kids I see being dragged along can sit up. That may be worth considering.

They only cost about a tenner, I'd just buy one. Also some hotels and chalets will have them to borrow, worth checking.
